Hi,I am sure it is a stupid problem but after installing QII, Nios suite and copied Control panel SW on my PC i am unable to get connection with DE2_70 board. When pusshing the download button i get "Make sure quartus is installed" . But it is installed! Is there a know problem with installation path as in our company tools must be installed in a dedicated directory wich is not c:\altera? Thanks JR

The control panel software is not relying on specific Quartus installation path. If you are able to connect the board through Quartus Programmer, the DE2 70 control panel should be able as well.

HiThanks for answering, but this is not a problem of physical connection. When control panel starts then there is a connection atempt (blue led flashing) , as the board is not loaded then this connection aborts and trying to download it induces the "Make sure quartus is installed" message as reply, here there no connection atempt at all. That why i was presuming that there could be a problem with Quartus or Nios installation path. I am using licensed regular software not the one supplied with the board. JR

Again,I have received a mail from terasic support telling me to try manual loading of .sof and .elf For .sof it is easy but for .elf i am supposed to use NiosDownloadBatch.bat and the funy is that this file doesn not exist on the installation you get from the DVD sold with the DE2_70! JR
